Mental Health First Aid is an evidence-supported strategy to engage communities through equipping clinical and non-clinical individuals with skills to address mental illness. This training will build upon the two-hour required pre-work completed by participants. During the training, participants will have opportunities to review pre-work, develop understandings of mental health conditions, substance use disorders, risk identification, and strategies for engagement in Hawaii communities. Participants will engage in interactive activities with trainer(s) and peers to practice the use of the ALGEE method in Mental Health First Aid, expanding skills in assessing/approaching individuals with mental health/substance use needs, listening nonjudgmentally, giving information for the purpose of connection and referral, and encouraging recipients of Mental Health First Aid to access formal Hawaii behavioral health services and informal supports for recovery.
